New York Giants' Injury Update: Barden Likely Out With Ankle Sprain

[UPDATE: 3:04 PM EST -- Head coach Tom Coughlin said today that Ramses Barden is likely lost for the season after suffering a "significant" ligament tear and a fractured ankle Sunday against Dallas. ]

Ramses Barden of the New York Giants was having the best day of his two-year NFL career, until he rolled his ankle awkwardly while trying to catch an Eli Manning pass in the end zone in the second quarter Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys.

Now, Barden is in a walking boot with an ankle injury that might cost him a week or two of action.

"I tried to come in here and run a little bit and I don't think they thought I was looking too well," Barden said. "Nothing to worry about. It is just rehab and get healthy. If it is a week, two weeks, I don't know how long it is going to be but when I find out, I will be back full speed and working my butt off. Might be 48 hours, who knows?"

The 6-foot-6, 229-pound Barden had three catches for 34 yards before being injured. Barden's absence left the Giants with only three healthy wide receivers in the second half -- Hakeem Nicks, Mario Manningham and rookie Duke Calhoun.

Tight end Kevin Boss said he "pretty darn sore" due to landing awkwardly on his back after leaping to make a tremendous 19-yard catch in the fourth quarter.
